Wide Asleep in Europe: Get some Facts. “Wir haben es nicht gewusst” “We Didn’t Know” = A No Go!

July 14, 2012 by occpal

While Israel is downgrading every moral and legal right of Palestine, Europe is upgrading relations with Israel.

Not only that. Israel is literally destroying Palestine in every way and by all means possible on daily basis. Not only the state of Israel, but it’s illegal settlers as well ransacking the west bank of Palestine. Even by EU funded projects. Wells, livelihoods, crops, frustrating or hindering totally every economical effort of Palestinians and sealing and depriving off Palestine in a way which makes nazi Warsaw Ghetto during WWII look pale.

While most people do not even have the slightest idea of the magnitude of the genocide on Palestine it’s eyes stay shut for the facts of deliberate deprivation causing excess death on an unknown scale which are even rewarded by Europe and sustained by it’s taxpayers who deliberately are kept ignorant about the reality.

Wide Asleep in Europe for the facts.

Of course all becomes a but strange when not so very long ago, the Dutch government blocked a (btw outdated) report on settler and related violence with a veto, which was leaked by TheRightsForum headed by former Dutch Minister President Dries van Agt.

Millions get dished lies as well

…at the world expo in the same Holland. Floriade 2012. In a romantic scenery with flowers, horticultural promised Israel even tells visitors it’s ending hunger, developing agriculture and more blatant lies which go were no liar has gone before.

This list can go on for hours. The mentioned links will provide you more facts and resources to facts which are silenced by your governments.

While the zionist entity and cohorts try to focus all’s attention to Syria, and pots are blaming kettles, these are about all ways Israel deploys to annihilate Palestine and it’s people.

So we online activists call on all reading, to share this news and the facts about Israeli deprivation of Palestine to your representatives in your government as well as at the EU.

Improving relations with an entity which on daily basis cuts the most fundamental rights of human beings are a no go zone.

Europe rewards Israel unconditionally: how does this advance peace?  Peace Israel is not even seeking.

Who did not get the point (yet) : Israel is not looking for Peace. Nor Talks. But this:  Read the Facts


Below the call of Hanan Ashrawi as published this morning by Ma’an News Agency.


Ashrawi calls on EU to review economic relations with Israel

Maan News Agency | July 24, 2012

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — Senior PLO official Hanan Ashrawi on Tuesday called on the European Union to review its relations with Israel in light of its persistent violations of international law.

The EU-Israeli Association’s annual meeting, held in Brussels on Tuesday, is an opportunity for the EU to ensure any economic relations with Israel are contingent on its compliance with international obligations, Ashrawi said in a statement.

“Rather than rewarding Israel by giving it preferential treatment,the EU should use its economic influence to end Israel’s illegal occupation of Palestine.”

“As the market for 60 percent of Israel’s exports, the EU has the ability to prevent Israel from destroying the chances for peace. All it needs is the political will,” Ashrawi said.

By expanding cooperation between government agencies and within business sectors, Ashrawi said the EU was separating issues of international law from issues of trade and economy, “allowing the EU to ignore Israel’s ongoing violations” against Palestinians.

She urged the EU to revoke any preferential treatment Israel receives in view of its “willful and persistent violations of its agreements and obligations.”

Article 2 of the Euro-Mediterranean agreement conditions Israel’s membership on respect for human rights and democratic principles, she noted, while Article 83 precludes applicability to all the occupied territories and so excludes settlement produce.

The executive director of international aid agency Oxfam Jeremy Hobbs also called Tuesday on the EU “to step up and take a leadership role” and to match its condemnations of settlement expansion “with urgent and concrete measures.”

“Europe’s condemnation of Israel’s settlement expansion is welcome but words alone mean nothing when people’s lives keep worsening,” Hobbs said in a statement.

At the 2011 EU-Israeli Association meeting, statements condemning Israeli settlement expansion were issued “yet we’ve seen a sharp rise in new settlement construction across the West Bank,” he added.

“Meanwhile, Palestinian displacement and Israeli-led demolition of Palestinian homes and water cisterns, many of which were funded by EU taxpayers, has increased.”

The EU, Israel and occupied territories

It is wholly inappropriate that the EU should be announcing a strengthening of economic ties with Israel at a time when that country is expanding its illegal settlements in the West Bank and carrying out evictions and demolitions of Palestinian property (EU move to upgrade relations with Israel, 23 July).

The announcement of 60 new areas of co-operation is in stark contrast with EU rhetoric against Israeli settlement policy. It also clashes with the EU’s stated policy of linking enhancement of relations with neighbouring countries to respect for democratic principles and human rights. The quote from an Israeli official at the end of your piece perfectly sums up what the Europeans try to deny: “Both parties are finding ways to increase co-operation when it suits them.”

Christian Aid believes that illegal settlements will continue to expand unless action, such as excluding settlement trade from EU markets, is taken that backs statements of condemnation from the EU. Any consolidation or strengthening of ties should be conditional upon an end to settlement expansion.

• I was outraged to read your article. The commission-proposed protocol to the Euro-Med Agreement with Israel would give Israel easier access to the EU market for exporting pharmaceutical products. Before the vote in the international trade committee, of which I am a member, the parliament asked the commission for guarantees that products from the occupied territories would not benefit from this scheme, and Labour MEPs warned the commission that any upgrade to trade relations with Israel is unacceptable while Israel continues to flout international law.

While many parliamentary groupings considered this a “technical upgrade”, it is not; it is a clear upgrade of trade relations with Israel and incompatible with international law and recent European parliament declarations denouncing the abuse of human rights in the occupied territories. It would be especially galling to allow easier access to the EU market for Israeli pharmaceutical products when Palestinians struggle for medical supplies under the Israeli-imposed blockade.

Articles 55 and 56 of the Fourth Geneva Convention clearly establish that Israel, as the occupying power, not only has a duty to ensure medical supplies reach hospitals in the OPT, but to ensure and maintain the services of the hospitals too. As High Contracting Parties to the Geneva Conventions, other states not only have a moral duty but also a legal obligation to ensure Israel abides by its commitments to the protected population of the OPT.

UN Convention of the Rights of the Child, As a States Party to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, Israel is obliged under Article 24 of the treaty to recognise the right of every child under its effective jurisdiction “to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health and to facilities for the treatment of illness and rehabilitation of health. States Parties shall strive to ensure that no child is deprived of his or her right of access to such health care services”.

note occpal | June 3, 2012 | At this moment 204 types of medication and 218 types of medical consumables are depleted completely. 200 others are on their way to depletion. Including zero stock of Thalassamia and Cancer medications are not available.

The fuel crisis prevents normal operation of nurseries, ICU & heart units and the emergency generators will encounter problems to face normal surgery schedules. Due to blackouts of power, also sewerage, water pumps and all operating on power shuts down which poses extra health risks which is unacceptable.

The international community though, is not pressuring Israel though about it’s killing by proxy policies which causes 1.7 million people in Gaza now to be effectively in a state of emergency and severe deprivation.

How many more dead corpses of Palestinians and their children does the international community need to see in order to act?
How many more cruelties and violations of Human Rights, Regulations and International Law will be needed?
How long so the world intervenes in this ongoing warcrime and it will be stopped once and for all?

For the sake of children and ill people in Palestine, share this post as wide as you can and keep sharing it. Health is no choice for many, right to medical care is a Human Right. Infringement of such is a passive form of aggression which policies Israel deliberately deploys with the intention to ethnic cleanse.
